With an online education you can train for a certificate or degree, and some careers may require hands on learning as well.

Students can study a variety of topics depending on the level of education and career they desire. Depending on the state some beauty professionals may be required to hold a license as well so it is important to fully understand the entire process of obtaining a career in this field. With an accredited education you may be able to find employment in spas, salons, barber shops, and more.


Cosmetology Online

With an education in cosmetology you can train for an exciting career in the beauty industry. Students can choose to obtain a professional certificate or associates degree depending on where they wish to be employed and the skills they want to possess. Coursework may consist of hair design, haircutting, salon management, hair removal, hair coloring, scalp treatments, and much more. Some online cosmetology schools teach students how to shampoo, style, and cut hair, as well as provide manicures, pedicures, and makeup services. There are not many accredited cosmetology programs available as it is not reasonable to learn how to cut hair online, so hands on learning may be necessary.
